it was somehow fitting

anonymous asked:

Hi there Pooklet! I’m so glad to see you posting again. I just wondered whether you had any tips for playing large families in small lots? I’ve always admired your ability to somehow fit so many people in what looks like such a small space! I much prefer small lots and hoods but I always end up feeling like I’ve run out of space and getting frustrated.

Hi friend!

Mostly, I rely on walkthrough blocks to maximize the space available to me. I talked more about them here, and also here are some examples of them in use (the bathrooms in particular). The less negative space, the better. These days 2x2 is the standard size of a legacy lot for me. I recently made a 3x3 house and it seemed absolutely cavernous in comparison. I also use ACR 2.0 which comes with inaccessible beds built in, so I can cram double beds up against walls in small rooms.

I mean, that’s pretty much it. I started out using a lot of 1x1 houses and getting used to maximizing the space in those lots with walkthrough blocks so I can shove in ALL the furniture in, but the sims can still navigate the layout without any screaming and handwaving. I still use 1x1 lots for small families (like 4-5 sims max), but in legacies I tend to need a 2x2 lot to juggle 10 or so sims at once.

Oh, also! I use a lot of bunk beds in kids’ rooms, since I never know how big a generation is going to be. It makes it easier to throw in an extra bed for stealth pregnancies.

Unpopular Voltron opinion, with meta to back it up.

I don’t think the big Keith and Lance scene in episode 6 was meant to be seen as having gone well, or for things to be getting back on track in regards to Lance’s doubts. I’m actually pretty sure the conversation unintentionally made things with Lance even worse.

Just because Keith and Lance shared a scene alone together, without any fighting or outward disagreements, does NOT mean it went well. I know everyone who is a Klance shipper wants that to be the case, but the whole “5 feet apart” jokes and logic with their ship shouldn’t suddenly change the emotional tone that is ACTUALLY present here.

Do not get me wrong, it is clear that both of them wanted this talk to go well without any confrontation, and to talk with a level head and with honesty. They have both grown as people to realize this. It doesn’t mean there wasn’t a major miscommunication here. 

Lets go through this moment by moment, shall we?

What if a lot of alien species didn’t actually evolve as pack species, and just adapted to living in communities out of necessity? So they can still work and live together, but they don’t have all the little instincts humans have that help them work in a group.

And they are freaked out by us.

We all wear the same clothes. It’s not a uniform— we just somehow all seem to like roughly the same outfits. We fit in so naturally with the people around us that you can use a human’s clothing to tell what country and what time period they are from. Aliens have no idea how we know what clothes are appropriate— they end up having to hire humans to act as fashion consultants after several incidents where diplomats showed up wearing mismatched clothes from various time periods and countries and looking totally ridiculous.

And what about yawning? Aliens who work on human ships say they never fully get used to hearing one human yawn and then having the whole room start yawning along with them. Or telling a joke to one human and seeing humans who say they don’t find the joke that funny cracking up anyway because “their laugh is so infectious!” It’s a common practical joke to tell new nonhuman crew members about this horrible disease humans get, where they feel tired and have an uncontrollable urge to open their mouths. It’s deadly, they say, and very contagious.

New safety procedures have to be worked out for the humans because, on the one hand, you don’t have to go around telling each individual to leave. Humans will just follow the mob. On the other hand, though, you have to be careful not to spread panic, because if one human runs, they all will, and they’ll trample anyone who isn’t fast enough to stay ahead.

Aliens hear humans tell their kids not to give into peer pressure and just get really confused. “Why would they do it if they don’t want to?”

“Because their friends are telling them to do it!”

“But why do it just because they’re telling them to do it?”

“Because they’re their friends!”

“What does that have to do with anything?”


When aliens see earth movies about people being indoctrinated or turned into zombies, it takes them a while to realise that these are horror movies because, from their perspective, that’s just what humans are like.

1. Keith knows exactly why these planets are dead

2. He thinks it’s somehow his fault

I’m really getting the vibe Keith has done something really bad in the past, or even was somehow responsible for the creation of Galra empire (which would also explain his yet explained motivation for fighting them), I was thinking maybe he’s seen someone make a bad leadership decision that resulted in alot of suffering for people, but now I think it was more something Keith actually did.

I dunno, I’m sensing alot of guilt from him and a desire to set things right. Like there’s a reason this line specifically hurts him

I bet Keith has done something really bad and selfish in the past and hurt alot of people
